Hi

I need to change the settings I entered for the initial configuration, and read to use (control-break) during reboot, and then follow certain steps.

Control-Break does not seem to work while the router is booting.  I have tried other key combinations, with no success.

I also read that Break might be disabled.  I have a 2600 series router

Resetting the password and setting for inittial config is done in a similar manner. Look at: http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/474/pswdrec_2600.shtml 
Are you accessing throught the console port or telnetting in.  You have to use the console port.  You have to send a break within 60 seconds of power up.  You can try it with Hyperterminal, but I have better luck with a decent teminal program.  Winterm, SmartTerm, Procomm, etc.

Also, if you only have Hyperterminal, try ctrl-c, ctrl-d, ctrl-q. Sometimes ctrl-c doesn't work.

I saw that the break must be sent within 60 seconds by pressing Ctrl + Break.  Nothing happens though.  I tried pressing just break, which ends in the same results.  I know how to access the configuration menu, but do want to know how to enable Break.

You are on the Console port and using Hyperterminal?

Look here.  It tells you how to enable and disable break among other things.
